Bach + One

Saint Paul’s Chapel

Having performed the entire sacred output of Johann Sebastian Bach, Trinity’s Bach at One series returns on Mondays. This season, Bach at One evolves into Bach + One: featuring one Bach cantata each week paired with a complementary work from composers early to modern.  The New York Times has praised the “dramatic vigor” of Bach performances by Trinity artists, not to mention “the buoyant, elegantly shaped orchestral sound” and “the lithe, immaculate and colorful singing of the chorus.”  

Johanna Sebastian Bach Ach Gott, vom Himmel sieh darein, BWV 2
Christoph Graupner Ach Gott, vom Himmel sieh darein
The Choir of Trinity Wall Street; The Trinity Baroque Orchestra; Avi Stein, chorusmaster and continuo; Robert Mealy, concertmaster; Julian Wachner, conductor
